Labiaplasty

Large or irregular labia can be uncomfortable and many women feel it is equally unsightly. If you are a woman who was born with large or irregular labia or who developed the condition after childbirth or with aging, labia reduction (labiaplasty) and cosmetic enhancement can ease your discomfort and even help you feel more comfortable with the way your outer vagina looks to your sexual partner. Women with larger or irregular labia often experience discomfort during sex, sports, or other physical activities. Chronic labial irritation can also develop in women who wear tight clothing, leaving the labia irritated and painful. Some women may also feel self conscious about the appearance of their enlarged labia. Labia reduction (labiaplasty) and cosmetic enhancement can restore comfort for many of these women but it can also help them look “prettier” like the women they see in magazines or in films. Together, that amounts to greater health and improved self-confidence.

Labia Reduction (Labiaplasty) and Cosmetic Enhancement Procedure

Labia Reduction and Cosmetic Enhancement diminishes the size or alters the shape of the small lips on the outside of your vagina (the labia minora). It typically takes Dr. Davidson one to two hours to complete and after an hour resting in the recovery room, you will be able to go home.

A short-acting, conscious sedation will render you unconscious and ensure greater comfort for you during the procedure. Because the sedation is short-acting, you will awaken within minutes after the labiaplasty surgery is complete.

Labiaplasty Recovery

Any discomfort you experience should disappear after the first few days, and you can expect to be fully healed in approximately six weeks. Sutures are absorbable and therefore do not need to be removed.
